It's not great

I love the colors of the yarn, they are so rich and beautiful, which is why I rated at a 3 and not a 2 star. However the quality is definitely lacking on this yarn which is super disappointing because I love lion brand yarns. I have had to cut and rejoin multiple times already in my project and I'm not very far in, there have been long section where it is bare, there is no velvet just the string, and it frays so easily, I can pull off the velvet so easily which makes me feel like this won't hold up well. I'm super sad about this because I was so excited to try this yarn, but I don't think I will be ordering it again. I have worked with other brand velvets and I have not run into this issue with the other ones at all, which makes this even more disappointing.

in LOVE with this yarn!!!

I would give Vel-luxe 10 stars if I could! I bought LOTS of the Silver, Charcoal, & Marigold colors & am currently making a big blanket for my king size bed. (***The blanket is the LB Rockwell Mandala Afghan which is a free LB pattern & recommends Vanna's Choice, but I'm obviously using Vel-luxe instead & I've altered the pattern by making more squares for a much bigger size.***) I bought more than enough to prevent from running out. I'm about 1/2 way through making this blanket & I've only come across 2-3 knots total from the cakes I've gone through so far (which is around 6-8 already). The yarn is very delicate, but I've been gentle with it & it's working up like a dream! I cannot wait for this to be done so my whole body can feel what my fingers feel!
I do wish there were more colors. The colors in the Vel-luxe Jumbo are beautiful but I prefer this #4 weight. I would definitely buy more for more projects if there were more colors! But, Vel-luxe still is still worth 5+ stars to me!
Thanks Lion Brand!!!

I love this yarn

Illt be ordering more for a 3rd sweater. My granddaughters love it I've only run into maybe 1 or 2 knots per cake. A few aces are a bit thjn in velvet but nothing that affected my projects
I love crocheting with it, fast and smooth.

Great but frayed

I was super excited to open up this package yesterday and begin my sweater with this yarn. It is so soft and velvety!!! I just want my sweater to be finished already!

However, the first ball I worked with looks like it has lost all the velvety coating and it's just the string in the middle. It's like that for a good portion of the center pull.

Thankfully it's like that for only one of the five balls I ordered so I can still start my project! But that's a lot of yarn lost in my opinion. It's definitely a very delicate yarn.

Hi Victoria - apologies for the un-velveted yarn in your order! If you come across this again, please contact our quality control team at support@lionbrand.com and let them know about this issue.

Beautiful but frays and knots...

I loved the feel of the yarn. But it knots up so quickly and frays if you need to re-do the stitch. I had to put away my project for now.
